San Diego Birth Injury Attorneys

Birth injuries can occur before, during, or immediately following birth.  Severe birth injuries have a variety of causes. However, the medical negligence that leads to this situation can take a number of forms, including:

  • Failure to perform appropriate procedures in a timely manner
  • Failure to monitor the baby properly during pregnancy, labor, and delivery
  • Misuse of painkilling drugs during labor and delivery
  • Mismanagement of high-risk pregnancies
  • Absence of needed medical equipment during labor and delivery

When the flow of blood and oxygen is restricted during the birthing process, the attending physician and other medical personnel must act quickly to increase the supply of oxygen to the baby in order to avoid permanent injury.  Unfortunately, there are times when the physician fails to act appropriately during a birth trauma situation and the infant child could face a serious risk of birth–related injuries turning a healthy baby into a profoundly disabled infant.

These birth injuries can manifest themselves in a variety of ways including Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy, and other types of brain damage.  Additionally, a baby can suffer permanent nerve damage as a result of a traumatic birth such as when a baby’s shoulder gets stuck in the birth canal, a condition known as shoulder dystocia.  Any type of birth injury can be devastating, both for families and the children who suffer from them.  Moreover, the long-term medical costs associated with treatment and care can be astronomical.  If you believe your child has suffered an injury due to negligence in the labor and delivery process, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
